Escambia High School Reviews

Attending public schools for all of my k-12 years around the same area, Escambia was normal imo. There are teachers there who have changed my life for the better and who truly cared about the well-being of students, but there are also teachers there who don't care or teach but still want money. As long as you choose your classes wisely (ask older students about the classes they took and about their experiences) and make good friends, you should have a fairly decent high school experience. Also make sure to get involved and join some clubs!

Escambia High School is one of the best in the district. The football games and overall energy of the school was amazing and full of spirit. However, when football season ended I found that the other sports were left out and the school's spirit died. The administration is great, I love the principal, Mr. Frank Murphy! The cafeteria serves decent food for a school cafeteria, as there is specialty lines. I absolutely loved Gator Time, it gave me the time I needed for clubs and schoolwork. Overall, I loved Escambia and am glad I graduated from there last year.
I have mixed feelings about my school, even though my personal experience has been mostly pleasant. Our school, for one, is in need of more teachers, our class sizes are huge! And the administration as a whole has a hard time connecting with the students. On a one on one level, most are pretty good about how they help and treat students, even if sometimes it’s not the right action they’re taking. There are very few teachers who aren’t incredible. Our teachers are dedicated, helpful, and admirable. They were so kind to me when I was in the hospital doing homebound instruction. And the student body is for the most part excited, intelligent, and talented. I’d like to see the administration work more with the students as a team to better our school, rather than as the sovereign power, and more patience when a very small handful of students are acting up, rather than punishing the whole school. Go Gators!
